Like most people who live in Milan, I was born elsewhere, in a little Southern Italian village that’s nestled between the fields and the sea. The kind of place where around ten o’clock every Sunday morning, amid a symphony of clattering pots and pans masterfully orchestrated by three generations of cooks, the kitchens explode with fragrances, yielding all the bounty of our centuries-old peasant heritage.
The city is a whole different world, where these things barely exist. And that may be why I’ve made food and everything related to it the focus of my work: it’s my way of celebrating an almost emotional bond and carrying on that tradition.
I got my formal training almost as a pastime, because I’ve practically always been a photographer; for ten years now, I’ve been publishing my work in specialized and general publications, creating images for ad campaigns, and capturing this unique universe through my camera lens.
